ARE WE MEANT TO KNOW ? It seems many people out there are saying “well nobody knows the day or the hour.It could be many many years from now for all we know” However, let’s take a look at 1Thessalonians 5:1-7 Apostle paul writes –
|But of the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.|
|For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.|
|But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.|
|You are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.|
|Therefore let us not sleep, as [do] others; but let us watch and be sober.|
|For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.That darkness and that thief is coming for the world and for those who don’t know Christ or have not been watching and prepared. Not for us, we are supposed to know. “you are the children of light, not of the darkness. Therefore let us not sleep as do others but let us watch and be sober.” So here I just want to reaffirm what he says – let us watch and be sober– Because we are meant to know when that day is approaching and when it is upon us. I know a lot of peoples mentality out there is – “well I’m not gonna worry about it, I don’t necessarily need to be aware cause when it happens it happens.” This is exactly what Paul was addressing here. Trust me when I say – YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE CAUGHT OFF GUARD AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT!
